There are multiple other subversion clients. Some of them probably use
subversion apis in a different manner. I wonder if anything tries to retry a
failed call without cleaning up properly... maybe re-using the same data
structs from the failed the original attempt? Or retries when they really
should abort?

John, do you know which client was used for the problem commits?

Hope this helps
